About Us

Produced by Nimble Publishing Ltd, HeavyTorque is written and published by a dedicated team with a reputation for producing innovative, technically accurate, eye-catching and high-quality publications. It's sister-titles are testament to this. On Scene is dedicated the vehicle recovery and rescue industry — a sector not dissimilar to the heavy haulage world with skilled professionals using complex equipment to achieve incredible results. Bulk and Tipper, meanwhile, is aimed at the specialist bulk haulage market and covers everything from heavy duty rigid tippers to highly sophisticated bulk powder tankers.

The heavy and abnormal transport sector, and the heavy lifting industry, waited a long time for a dedicated magazine and website that addresses the special issues they face. HeavyTorque was launched in January 2015 to fill that demand and has quickly become the authoritative voice of the industry.

HeavyTorque provides a fresh approach to the issues that affect abnormal load and lifting specialists. The magazine and website are full of interesting and informative news, technical features, interviews, case studies, expert comment and analysis, and essential market information and legislation updates. HeavyTorque’s quarterly magazine is written by carefully selected, independent journalists who understand the business. Their expertise spans everything from renewables, power generation, oil and gas to heavy lifting, heavy engineering, rail, construction, plant and machinery, civil engineering and infrastructure. We test drive new vehicles from all the heavy truck and trailer manufacturers, and talk to the development engineers responsible for new and innovative components. Case studies and company profiles ensure that we cover current operational trends and the latest trucks, trailers and heavy lift equipment.

We also report from key European exhibitions and shows, and cover innovations in the industry around the world. HeavyTorque is published by Nimble Publishing Ltd, and proudly supports the Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers & Importers (ALLMI), and the Heavy Transport Association (HTA).

In addition to the magazine, HeavyTorque is also the force behind The Heavies, a biennial awards event that celebrates the outstanding achievements of our industry. The Heavies will be returning in 2024, please stay tuned for further details on event/entry dates, venue, location and much more. For more information and to visit The Heavies website, click here.

From the well written articles to the exceptional photos, Heavy Torque is a market leader in our industry. At Van der Vlist we love keeping up to date with the latest news and projects, even making our own appearance in 2016. We could not recommend this magazine enough.

HeavyTorque magazine is a class apart. Its orientation illustrates our sector on a different level. The general look is really unique and we value the highly informative content. The magazine is an ideal communication platform and partner for the Faymonville Group – who offer the complete transport solution for payloads from 15t to 15,000t… and beyond.

I certainly enjoy reading HeavyTorque - and whilst we do not operate any heavy haulage ourselves - we do so on a sub-contract basis. Therefore, it’s good to see what equipment is being used by both suppliers, and the industry operators alike. The content and photographic quality is always first rate. Keep up the great work!

HeavyTorque marks a refreshing change to the many other transport-related magazines launched in the last few years. Not only are the articles well-written and the photographs first-class, but the paper quality and size of the magazine mark it out as something really special to read.

HeavyTorque has set a new standard in specialist print and on-line journalism. Not only is it attractive and appealing with great photography and layout, but the features provide in depth and incisive insight into this highly specialised sector of the road transport industry.

From the drivers’ viewpoint, HeavyTorque is a must-read for those interested or associated with the heavy haulage industry. The title is very informative on a wide range of projects - not only in the UK - but worldwide. On another note, it was a personal privilege (as a driver) to be invited to the industry awards evening, The Heavies… but to then be awarded 'The Heavies Hero' in 2017 was an amazing achievement. May I say a massive thank you to my fellow peers for their continued support and nominations!

Kelsa choose to advertise in HeavyTorque because its content is clearly for serious players in the haulage industry, with a wide range of informative articles. We know that it reaches the right people and covers aspects of trucking most others do not, offering information on changes within the industry as well as new products and services. As a designer I’m also aware of the extremely high quality of the photographic content and print. We are really happy with the service we receive and have no hesitate in recommending HeavyTorque to truckers everywhere.
